Oil starvation is the number one cause of engine damage that we see for the NSX. During high speed cornering, braking, and acceleration experienced under high performance driving, oil sloshes away from the oil pick up point in the oil pan which may cause the oil pick up to run dry. This baffle is inexpensive insurance against expensive engine repair.
This baffle is designed to rest immediately above a running engine's oil level in the pan to keep oil at the bottom of the pan available to the pick up. The baffle, manufactured from stainless steel, envelopes the oil pick up to keep oil trapped at the bottom of the pan. The baffle also features chamfered drain holes and a deflection plate to prevent slosh under right hand cornering (when the oil would be furthest from the pick up).
The baffle attaches to the pan by welding four tabs that secure the baffle in place. Instructions for welding is included with baffle, allowing easy installation. ScienceofSpeed offers oil pan's pre-installed and powdercoated on exchange (click for details).
Also available is a new oil pan, with a baffle already welded and powdercoated, ready to go. If your pan is dented, or the threads are stripped out, this is the best option to refresh you pan at the same time to full capacity and new threads. Note the pan with the baffle pre-installed is made to order only. Please allow 1-2 weeks from when order is placed, for order to ship out.
